    Default CUPS 1.4.0 Printing Server Brings New Interface

    Phoronix: CUPS 1.4.0 Printing Server Brings New Interface

    Default Finally a new look

    Finally a new look. Ever since Apple bought CUPS, I wondered why the project web site still looked like ass despite tons of skilled designers at Apple.

    Except the new looks, my personal favourite change in 1.4 is:
    61. PDF filter; the pdftops filter has been replaced with a wrapper program that runs the Xpdf, poppler, or Ghostscript PDF to PostScript utilities.

    This reduces unnecessary code duplication between projects and especially poppler is developing nicely anyway.
